Sleep tight

Sleep tight

Leading bed manufacturer Simmons is developing a new bed with Panasonic Electric Works, to be available in February 2010. The bed uses Panasonic’s cutting edge technology to offer a comfortable sleep environment through automatic adjustment of lighting and sound.

In addition to lighting and audio equipment and controllers, the new Simmons Restino is installed with sensors that detect body movement and room temperature. At bedtime the unit plays relaxing music as the lighting turns down gradually, and shuts off automatically when the bed detects no body movement. The light turns on and music plays to induce the user to wake up for the day. The price hasn’t been announced yet.

    cutting edge technology to offer a comfortable sleep environment through automatic adjustment of lighting and sound...lighting and audio equipment and controllers....he unit plays relaxing music as the lighting turns down gradually...light turns on and music plays to induce the user to wake up for the day...

    so let's see if I've got this straight here... light with dimmer switch? Built in speakers? Volume control? Alarm clock? Like Wow! Cutting edge indeed! I'd better reach for my wallet.

    What year are we here... 1958? Oh yes, and how many eco-points does this baby win me?

    In Japan we are in 1958. Most couples sleep in different beds and/or futons. Look at the photo. It's a single.

    Good point, noborito. I wonder if the speakers play the gentle sound of hubby snoring to soothe fractious wives to sleep in their solitary glory...

    What happens when your girlfriend wakes up every 10 minutes to change position? Does the bed start playing music again? Add that to the snoring and blanket theft, sounds like a peaceful night sleep~
